Bioregenerative medicine in aesthetics is changing the way we age. Ageing is a given but we now have tools to slow down the process. Traditional cosmetic procedures are being redefined as groundbreaking innovations utilize the power of the body’s natural regenerative abilities to restore, rejuvenate, and repair the skin. These treatments can help rejuvenate your skin by reducing fine lines and revitalizing the skin’s texture. This approach offers natural-looking results, reduces the risk of complications, and has minimal downtime.
Here’s a closer look into bioregenerative medicine and the latest available treatments. PRP was once the go-to medical cosmetic procedure, but newer, more innovative approaches, including polynucleotides and exosomes, are less invasive and yield exceptional results.
Understanding Bioregenerative Medicine in Aesthetics
Bioregenerative medicine harnesses the body’s innate ability to heal and regenerate itself. Unlike traditional cosmetic procedures, this approach doesn’t involve invasive surgeries or artificial implants.
You may have heard about Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, which is an older bioregenerative technology that relies on patients’ own growth factors. In PRP, the patient’s blood is collected and processed before being reinjected into the skin. It is a bit more invasive than the newer treatments and also relies on your body having enough growth factors. This varies from person to person.
What’s The Latest in Bioregenerative Aesthetics?
Polynucleotides and exosomes are two of the latest breakthroughs in bioregenerative medicine. You will be hearing about them everywhere this year.
Here’s what you need to know about polynucleotides and exosomes.
Polynucleotides (PNs) have been around for a decade in Korea. They use extracted purified DNA fragments of salmon and are injected into the skin. Treatments increase collagen production by 53%, improve circulation, reduce fine lines and dark undereye circles, and increase skin plumpness. PNs are administered through minimally invasive techniques and can be used anywhere. We inject it either with a needle or a cannula which is a blunt tipped instrument. A course of 2-3 sessions is advised after which a maintenance session once every 6-9 months is administered.
Our clinic has seen exceptional results using PNs under the eye, neck and hands. These are areas where we have the thinnest skin and first to show signs of collagen loss. This treatment is considered very safe without allergy risks. However, we recommend an allergy test if a patient is allergic to seafood.
Polynucleotides are an exceptional alternative for people considering tear trough filler but are worried about the risk of puffiness and migration. We actually turn away 60-70% of patients who come seeking tear trough filler as there are several factors that need to be taken into account for a good and safe result. It is great to be able to offer an alternative to tear trough filler.
Exosomes are the messengers that tell cells to stimulate collagen. Exosomes play a crucial role in cell-to-cell communication. The tiny structures are harvested from stem cells to promote tissue repair and regeneration. Some say it is more important than growth factors. So far, exosomes have been human-derived, which is why No Filter Clinic has stayed away from them. We are unsure about the human source and that didn’t sit well with us. However, we’re excited to announce there is a non human derived version arriving soon in clinic. We will be administering this with microneedling and Morpheus 8 treatments.
